Default S2 Chargers ok for S4?

I have a few Samsung official chargers that I have at work, home etc...

The S4 charger is a bit bigger and so is the battery.

Is it ok to use the S2 charger to charge the S4, or should this be avoided?

I tested the S2 charger and it works, but if its not the right power requirements etc and if it should be avoided, please let me know.

It probably won't charge as fast, but as far as I know it should otherwise be okay.

The S2 charger will work on the S4 but it is about half the amperage as the S4 charger, so expect double the time to a full charge. Get yourself a decent 2 Amp charger for a few bucks and be happy.
